Hello, I was wondering will there be some drivers updates, even bios for this laptop since Windows 10 is coming out and i got a free upgrade reserved.
Another thing.. i noticed not all drivers are on the site for this laptop... like for instance.. this laptop came with Win 8.1 installed and i left the original hdd out, put in my new hdd with window 7.. i looked up the drivers, there's some driver are missing on window 7's list.. but rest on window 8's list, i was wha.. what should i do to properly install the drivers? Do i just do the hardware ids in the device manager list and search it online, do that way?
I will check out that link you provided about the window 10 qualified HP product.
About the drivers that's missing of the list, you stated that window 7 has more driver built in?
I don't agree with you on that answer. I am a qualified computer service tech, and an experienced builder / gamer. I have a discreet Nvida graphic card in this laptop and there's no driver for it on window 7... I know for a fact you are supposed to have Nvida driver in order to use the gpu at all.. In ALL laptop and desktop that has ANY deciated gpu installed, you must download from either AMD or Nvida depending on what brand of gpu it is, in order to use the graphic properly.
So, what i'm asking is why there's some driver missing of the site for this laptop? It's not the only time I see it happens, been the same thing for several laptops. Is it because HP lazy on their part to uploads the proper drivers? Or something else i'm missing?
I'm just getting alittle frustuated with this laptop since some driver isn't working properly.. and some HP support agent few weeks ago saying i should install the driver from different laptop... did that.
HP does provide drivers for the products that originally came with Windows 7. As configurations do vary within the same product line, if you choose to downgrade your system you may not find the required driver listed as it was not necessary for the original configuration of the Windows 7 notebooks.
